We left Wind Cave and managed to catch service 3 to Fairy Cave. Please check the bus schedule on the day to see if it fits your plan. At the road junction, a sign pointed that Fairy Cave is 300 m away. It is definitely not true. So be prepared to walk far further than 300 m. Upon reaching the... More

Pristine condition of a cave with steps to aid you in exploring. You might want to come in a proper footwear and headtorch as the steps are slippery and steep. There is also a few sections of dark areas. All in all a worth hike for ancient cave formation.

We visited Fairy Cave through a tour with Kuching Offroad Tours. This enabled us to go further into the cave as we had helmets and lights, as well as a guide. This was the first cave we had ever gone into. It was wonderful. Inside we heard swallows, saw bats and even a snake. A great experience.

The Fairy Cave and the bat cave was a nice change of scenery from the hot and humid outdoors. Worth the day trip to explore and easy access and walking through out

Small size cave with steep staircase climbing but worth discovering. Located few kilometers away from Bau Town. Make sure to bring your own flashlight coz it will be very dark. Entrance fee is cheap.

We had a good day travelling to fairy and wind cave, we got the public bus from Kuching to Bau and then the local buses between them, except the information the tourist information had given us was wrong, the local buses around were not reliable and we ended up getting a lift from a nice local who says he ends...

We climbed quite a number of steps before we entered the cave chamber. The cave itself is lighten by sunshine. However, it is still recommended to bring a torchlight because there is a short, steep climb which is quite dark. The cave is quite big actually. If you are Malaysian, you only need to pay RM1. It's really worth visiting.... More

There is a lot of steps to get to the entrance of the cave and more steps inside but the cave is worth the effort. It's a huge cavernous space inside. Our guide told us the chinese gold prospectors used to hide in here from the japanese. Some of the natural formations look like statues.

Drop by here if you are already in Kuching and have time, though I would think that if you are visiting or have visited Mulu Caves, you can actually skip this. Wear proper shoes because the stairs are very steep and slippery.
